Neti Pot

Does anyone else use this? It is the most amazing tool for cleaning out your nasal passages, I am so totally hooked!
I finally talked my husband into using this and he no longer snores - gone! now I can hardly sleep, I am actually so use to his snoring after 7 years.

I saw this on Oprah and I'm going to order one online. This has been the worse allergy season and I don't want the expense & possible risk of elevated blood pressure from allergy meds.

It is so funny that you are mentioning this. I haven't heard of this before, until 2 weeks ago. Since then, I have not only heard of it, but seen 2 people use it. They insist it is amazing. I didn't realize it would help with snoring. Maybe I'll suggest it to my mom (although, at this point, she's probably completely addicted to Tylenol PM!)

I LOVE my neti pot. Been using it for a couple of years. Be careful the first time you use it. It should NOT fill up your sinuses but go in one nostril and out the other. Altho I have to admit that's exactly what it did the first time I used it (when recovering from a cold). I couldn't believe how clean the passages were. I think I hadn't been using those sinuses for YEARS! I sure filled a lot of kleenexes. Do not use the neti pot unless you can breathe at least a little through BOTH nostrils. There is another squeeze botttle thingy (sinusaid or something like that) that my ENT recommended since you can put the salt water up the nostril and out the other while your head is upright. Make sure you don't have too little or too much salt in the warm water. I bought the premeasured packets at first, and ended up finding that about half the packet in my pot (about 1 cup of warm tap water) felt the most comfortable. Enjoy having the open breathing passages! Great for allergies (altho I have not stopped the antihistamines...)

Ah, fond memories of the Six Feet Under episode where Ruth finds crazy old George's neti pot in her kitchen cupboard...

Walgreens carries the SInu-cleanse brand. I love mine, especially when I have a sinus infection.

I have used SINU CLEANSE from Walgreens for about 7 months now when the allergist told me i didn't have allergies, I went to the ENT and guess what--I have allergies that were causing sinus and ear congestion. Do it in the shower to save time. Even my 7 year old daughter uses it. It's homeopathic and very healthy!

modern neti

I have the NeilMed Sinus Rinse, purchased at Walgreen's. It serves the same function as a neti - cleaning out the nasal passages - but it looks less like a tea pot and more like a sports-top water bottle. I used to miss work for 2-3 days at at time about once a month in the fall-winter. I started doing saline rinses last year and missed only one day of work. OMG, it feels so good not to be congested!
